Original Medicare (Part A and B) Eligibility and Enrollment

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

To be eligible for premium-free Part A, an individual must be entitled to receive Medicare based on their own earnings or those of a spouse, parent, or child. To receive premium-free Part A, the worker must have a specified number of quarters of coverage (QCs) and file an application for Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) benefits. The exact number of QCs required is dependent on whether the person is filing for Part A on the basis of age, disability, or End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). QCs are earned through payment of payroll taxes under the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) during the person’s working years. Most individuals pay the full FICA tax so the QCs they earn can be used to meet the requirements for both monthly Social Security benefits and premium-free Part A.

Am I eligible for Medicare if I am under 65?

Note that Social Security, not Medicare, makes the determination of whether you qualify for SSDI checks. In addition, the Social Security Disability Insurance program administers these checks as long as you or your family members have worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. For more information on the Social Security Disability Insurance program, it’s best to contact your local Social Security Administration office.
